City of Chicago

 

Resting along this beautiful Lake of Michigan is the equally beautiful City of Chicago. The largest and third most populous city in the United States, it houses over 2.8 million people distributed into its four main sections, namely: the North Side, the West Side, the South Side and Downtown. Downtown, as with all places called downtown, is where the city action is. This is where what they call “The Loop” is located, where all the cultural, commercial and financial institutions thrive. Most of the residential areas on the other hand are at the North, South and West Side.


The City of Chicago is home to rich cultural and ecological treasures such as art galleries, parades, and beautiful public parks. Up at the River North neighborhood, right outside of Manhattan, you will find lots of modern art galleries. Meanwhile, you can watch the Bud Billiken Day parade march down the South Side. Adding to the city’s cultural charms are the National Museum of Mexican Art and the Puerto Rican Day festival. Jackson Park and Washington Park are also found in this beautiful city. On the West Side, you will find vast arrays of tropical plant collection at the Garfield Park Conservatory.
